Know your worth (18 November)

This week our thought was written by Jeniya Gwendu , Moderator EBA trustee board. Last week I was sent this short story about a father and his watch. A father before he died said to his son: “this is a watch your grandfather gave me, and this is more than 200 years old, but before […]

You can’t blend in if you were born to stand out (11 November)

The thought this week was written by Graeme Ross, EBA Regional Minister As we have entered into this second lockdown, I have been really challenged through reading Romans 12.1-2: Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God – this is […]

Mary or Martha? (4 November)

The thought this week is written by Nick Lear, EBA Regional Minister Last week I had a reading day booked in the diary. I made myself a nice large glass of elderflower and fizzy water, settled into my comfortable chair, picked up my book (Tom Wright: God and the Pandemic – I highly recommend it) […]

Catching the breeze (28 October)

This beautiful dog was taken for a walk to the top of a cliff along the Cornish coast.  It was the first time that he had been there.  Being a Spaniel he has the most acute sense of smell and he sat in this position catching all of the smells that the strong breeze was […]

How is your signal strength? (21 October)

Because he cares for you (14 October)

Slippery Language (7 Oct)

The thought for this week has been written by Nick Lear, EBA Regional Minister Is it just me, or is the use of language becoming more slippery and less honest? Maybe it’s rose-tinted nostalgia glasses but It seems to me that it was not so long ago that people spoke more plainly and honestly. Let […]

He’s on every page even if you can’t see him (30 September)

This week, our thought has been written by Graeme Ross, EBA Regional Minister Have you ever looked at a ‘Where’s Wally’ book? (‘Where’s Waldo’ to our American & Canadian friends). I need to be honest and say that I find these books really stressful because I’m hopeless at spotting Wally. I know he’s on every […]

Embrace the mud!! (23 September)

This week’s thought has been written by John Goddard, EBA council member and Minister at Saffron Walden Baptist Church Embrace the mud!! My sons didn’t expose me to much opportunity to gather on the touchline whilst they played sports-ball, with my generous taxi service more often being needed for chess tournaments and choir rehearsals, rather […]
